North Korea has released a threat through its state-run news agency KCNA that it will attack the U.S. by land, air, sea and under the sea if drills America is conducting in concert with South Korea threaten “the DPRK’s sovereignty and dignity even a bit.”

According to Reuters, the USS Carl Vinson, a Navy supercarrier with nuclear capability, was in South Korea seas as part of annual joint drills between the U.S. and South Korea. It was referred to as a “routine deployment” by its commander.

“While this is a routine deployment for the Carl Vinson strike group, really the centerpiece for us … is this exercise we’re doing with the ROK navy called ‘Foal Eagle’,” commander of the strike group Rear Admiral James W. Kilby said.

UPI reported that the Carl Vinson Strike Group includes “5,500 crewmembers, the Wayne E. Meyer destroyer and aircraft from Carrier Air Wing 2.”

North Korea responded to the U.S. presence by vowing “merciless” attacks.

“If they infringe on the DPRK’s sovereignty and dignity even a bit, its army will launch merciless ultra-precision strikes from ground, air, sea and underwater,” the North Korea said through its state-run news source. “On March 11 alone, many enemy carrier-based aircraft flew along a course near territorial air and waters of the DPRK to stage drills of dropping bombs and making surprise attacks on the ground targets of its army.”

The handling of this complicated geopolitical situation will be a test for President Trump, who has for years put in his two cents on Twitter.

More recently, Trump has urged China to take the lead on dealing with North Korea.

“You gotta work on North Korea,” Trump reportedly told a Chinese official on Feb. 27.

“China should solve that problem,” Trump has also said in the past. “And if they don’t solve the problem, we should make trade very difficult for China.”
